(This article is drawn from the INTRODUCTION to Rebooting the Bible, Part 1)

Admittedly, pop-archeology is trumped up and commercially exploited to ridiculous lengths. Furthermore, and unfortunately, it is wedded to extensive speculation about extraterrestrials. Additionally, it’s important to acknowledge that the marriage of aliens and the myths of antiquity offer a dangerous and deceptive alternative to conventional Theism. … Read More

COMMENDATION FROM DR. WILLIAM DOUBEK, THEOLOGIAN, FOR MY NEWEST BOOK, REBOOTING THE BIBLE

 


            I believe the Bible to be the inspired, inherent Word of God. Since my earliest days at the Seminary, I was taught to believe this. What a lot of laity do not truly understand is that that is true for the original autographs.


Current translations often contain errors due to the biases of their translators. Plus, a contemporary misunderstanding of the ancient Hebrew language. That is why we were required to learn and use the Hebrew language of the Old Testament and koine Greek of the New Testament before we could attend Concordia Seminary (LCMS), St. Louis.

Why We Need to Reboot the Bible

When it comes to the question of origins, Christians believe that we have the inside track in this quest. And we do. We know a great deal about the past. The Christian faith is drawn from the renowned actions of the Bible’s heroes and saints, our Lord Jesus chief among them. Unfortunately, we have been fooled into believing a great deal of hogwash about earlier Read More

IS AN INERRANT KING JAMES BIBLE HOW GOD PRESERVES HIS WORD FOR US?

IS THE KING JAMES BIBLE THE ONLY BIBLE THAT PRESENTS GOD’S WORD?

For some, the mandatory usage of The King James Bible is a hedge against secularism and apostasy. In our world today, many conservative churches continue to argue vehemently that the KJV is the only trustworthy source, for it is the only Bible deemed to have the “imprimatur” of the Lord. [1]

They feel God not only supernaturally inspired the original autographs of the biblical writers, but they also believe He supernaturally inspired its preservation by keeping all errors out of the King James Bible. As one advocate told … Read More
